Details & FAQs:
Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy (CID), is a treatment that stimulates the body’s natural healing processes, boosting collagen and elastin.
During microneedling treatment, we operate a special handheld pen that uses microneedles to pierce the top layer of the skin in a precise, controlled pattern. These micro-injuries kick-start the body's natural healing process, stimulating collagen and elastin production in the treated area.
After microneedling, we inject PFR, or platelet-rich fibrin, into the micro-injury sites to further activate the body's natural rejuvenating abilities. The result is refreshed, firmer, smoother skin and a more vibrant and youthful complexion.
PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) is a newer, improved version of PRP (platelet-rich plasma) widely used for skin rejuvenation.
Like PRP, we extract PRF from your body by drawing a small amount of blood. We then place the blood into a centrifuge for processing.
After we process your blood, it will separate into 3 layers:
The topmost layer contains plasma without platelets.
The bottommost layer contains red blood cells.
The middle layer is where the PRF settles.
PRF releases many biologically active proteins that promote healing and rejuvenation, including:
Several growth factors
Healing matrix proteins
Bone morphogenic protein
Other regenerative materials
When we inject PRF in the desired area requiring healing and regeneration, platelets are activated and release several regenerative proteins that have therapeutic properties.
How long will the procedure take, and what's the downtime?
Microneedling with PRF Injection appointments are approximately 90 minutes.
Expect some swelling, bruising, redness, and tenderness in the area post-treatment that should resolve within a few days.
How many treatments will I need? When will I see results?
Results will be visible after initial treatment once post-procedure redness, swelling, and bruising have subsided.
We will determine your unique treatment plan based on your goals and concerns.
Maintenance varies by individual patient's skin type, concerns, and goals.
